You may know Mike from his work at the Potawatomi Wildlife Park (http://www.getintonature.com
) where he's been the Park Manager since 1991. You might know Mike from his time as a Scout Leader over the years, even his Astronomy club involvement and church involvement. He might be a friend, a relative, or someone who you just met because of a friend or relative.
No matter how you came here, you're welcome and your help is needed.
The Stephan family has had it tough. Sharon Stephan (https://www.facebook.com/sstephan5
) Mike's wife was diagnosed with a rare cancer Multiple Myeloma (https://themmrf.org
) back in May 2005. We know numbers are just numbers. Sharon had bad odds and yet she has fought and 15 years later is here and supporting Mike a lot during this time.
The odds can be beaten, and I want to make that clear.
Mike & Sharon also have two children, Zoee (https://www.facebook.com/zoee.stephan
) and Wyatt (https://www.facebook.com/wyatt.stephan.1
Zoee just graduated Penn State University in December and Wyatt will graduate Purdue University this coming winter in December. They've had a tough time as well, dealing with the shadow of cancer in their family for a long time. But they are awesome and great kids who have always worked hard to help their family. They still are, and during this COVID time, God has blessed both of them to be there helping their family. .
